The Fairytales Story Machine (by Alan Peat Ltd)
The Fairytales Story Machine helps both pupils and busy classroom teachers to plan Fairytales (over a million combinations are possible...and that's no exaggeration!).
The machine has eight parts:
2 Main character/s
3 Other character/s
6 Random Language Feature
Pupils 'spin' each of the eight parts of the machine (up to three times) to reveal a HUGE range of genre-appropriate ideas.
When ALL eight parts have been 'spun' the story machine collates all of the ideas into one printable sheet which can be used as a stimulus for a fairytale.
It's NOT prescriptive - pupils can include as many of the ideas as they wish but they don't have to include all of them. Whether they include a few or every one they certainly will be learning a great deal about the genre.
This is the second in a series of Story machines which will cover all narrative genres. Check out our Science Fiction Story Machine!

Not user friendly
As an app designed to be used by children, this is not a user-friendly writing tool at all. You can't look at all the story options before you choose which one you want, so if you change you mind you have to delete everything and start again.
Very disappointing, won't be buying any of the others.
